About Event

**Scratch Day @ MIT is sold out! You can consider joining the waitlist, finding another Scratch Day near you, or even hosting your own Scratch Day!**

**Please note: Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult, and each person in the party (both children and adults) need a ticket to attend the event.**

Join the Scratch Team on May 12th at the MIT Media Lab to meet, share, learn, and celebrate Scratch Day with local Scratchers!

Doors will open at 9am for registration, and festivities will run from 10am to 12:30pm. After an opening ceremony, children and families can choose from a variety of activities: getting started with Scratch and ScratchJr, connecting Scratch to the physical world, making music and art with Scratch, extending Scratch knowledge, experimenting with shapes and light, collaborating with local Scratchers, and more!

We welcome children of all ages to the event, with a special focus on age 5 - 14. Whether you are a newcomer or an experienced Scratcher, you will have a chance to learn more about Scratch, share projects, and hang out with the Scratch Team. Parents and educators are encouraged to participate in activities and join discussions about Scratch.
